Bree Louise. Cask. Clear deep amber beer, small cream coloured head. Palate is smooth with low carbonation. Sweetish malt, little dried fruits. Over ripe orange. Light finish. It’s fine.
Cask at Back of Beyond, JDW - Reading. Pours clear russet with a creamy khaki head. The nose has notes of solvent, plastic and grains. Light sweet flavor with more solvent, plastic, a little rubber, leaves, grains. Light bodied either to average carbonation. Lightly astringent on the finish, more plastic, earth, leaves, burnt grain. Very poor. chriso (21656) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2006
Cask (handpump) at the Three Horseshoes, Marlow Bottom. OK, its a brown ale, but I don’t think I would have placed it in that category. A slightly sharp edge to the finish put me in mind of an old ale. Rich, dark ruby colour. There’s certainly some smoky malt and a touch of caramel in the aroma, but also some other elements that I found it difficult to pin down. Having now seen the ingredients list, with the unusual (for the UK anyway) combination of US hop varieties and dark malts, I can perhaps understand why. On the palate, its sharp, malty and bitter at the same time, with a hint of sweetness. Clean hops and touches of licorice too. Very fresh and tasty.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2006 Cask Conditioned at The Turf Tavern, Oxford.Stuu666 (14843) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 13, 2014
Brown to Gold colour with lasting bubbly head. The Turf Tavern is Oxford CAMRA branch Pub of the Year for ’04 so the quality should be at its best and this proved to be a tasty, sl sour malt beer with rich fruity notes. There is a strong alcohol note, playing above its strength and a rounded smooth finish.
Mini-Cask at a friends. Pours copper brown, roasty, nutty, sweet dry toffee, but too thin. mR_fr0g (13511) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2014
Cask gravity at the brewery shop. Aroma is sweet nutty jam fruits. Clear rich red copper colour with a lasting thin off white head. Flavour is nutty malt, dried fruit, some earthy hop bitterness. Really good condition. Another solid beer.
